 In this sequel to The Calling, Sheriff Luke Atwell and his deputies face individual and collective challenges from outlaws, gunfighters, renegade Indians, card sharps, and a thieving medicine show in a Kansas town in the 1870’s. The personal lives of the lawmen also change and nature takes its destructive toll on the town and its residents. When a black neighbor’s family is attacked and the oldest son killed, the sheriff gets the help of federal law enforcement and they chase a band of marauding ex-Confederates out to undo the changes resulting from the Civil War.

Interview of Sarah Dunsters author of Mile 21

Saturday, October 12th, 2013

Tell us where you were born.

Santa Cruz, California.  I’m an eight-generation Californian on my mom’s side (cowboys and pirates) and on my Dad’s side I come through Martin Handcart stock. I’m a good mix 🙂

California, very nice. Who or What inspired you to write this book?

Interview of Steve Westover author of Return of the Mystic Gray

Saturday, April 27th, 2013

I was shy about letting people know I was trying to write a book because I’d never attempted anything like it before. (more…)

This is an awesome story that is very well written about spouse and partner abuse. It is written quite tastefully, yet powerfully, with a hint of romance to make it all better. This is a hard subject for any woman that has been in an abusive relationship, (more…)

A Jane Eyre Parody by Joan Sowards

This book could be a chapter out of real life for many twenty-seven year-old single LDS girls. The main character, Janie, is a witty, well-rounded woman who grows up with her sister.

Kylee is married and has children while Janie would love to be en her shoes, but her hips are just a touch larger and boys don’t go for her. (more…)
